Tekken 7 Season Pass 3 does not include any guest characters

Sorry Kazuma Kiryu or Tifa Lockhart fans, come back next season. Talking with Shacknews/GamerHubTV, Tekken 7's producer Michael Murray explained that the remaining two characters (I don't know why they were talking like there was only one left) in Season Pass 3 are not guest characters. As Murray says, the end slate used in the Season 3 roadmap image doesn't have a specific slot with a custom effect which normally indicates the presence of a unique guest fighter. With that said, the Wing Chun fighter Leroy Smith is on his way and we get a small back-and-forth on what to expect from his fighting style. To hear more about the Season 3 DLC from Murray, check out the video interview over on the GamerHubTV YouTube page.

What's next Harada: evolving the fighting game genre and Esports

It's that time of the year again where E3 takes place, and although there isn't anything new to present for the Tekken or SoulCalibur side of things, figureheads from Bandai Namco were in attendance once again to do an E3 coliseum panel with Geoff Keighley. The panel for this year is focused on the strengths of Fighting games in the Esports business, but similar to the interview from last year, Geoff is slightly awkward since he doesn't have a FG background and throws out his ideas on where they could go or evolve into that might not really resonate with those inside the community. Video archive of the 'Strength of Fighting Games in Esports' session is now available for people to catch up over on YouTube. I also have a written transcript of the panel added down below so feel free to read that if you want to skip most of the 'soooo, uhhh, anooo' air time.

Tekken 7 Developer Q&A Video: Character Development

Make sure you put the subtitles on when you watch the video this time. Tekken 7 Developer Q&A video #2 is up and this one has Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray discuss what goes into Tekken 7's character development. They go over the several factors that contribute to creating new fighters such as what goals they plan to achieve with the character, what kind of character they should be whether it is a newbie friendly or complex character and the compatibility of the fighting style within the game. An interesting thought piece if you were curious on what were some of the brainstorming that went into designing some of your favorite characters. You can check out the Developer Q&A video below.

Tekken 7 Developer Q&A Video: Tournament Mode

Tekken Project leads Katsuhiro Harada & Michael Murray discuss Tekken 7's Online Tournament Mode in a new Developer Q&A video. They both discuss the new mode and what it means for players online; particularly the not so hardcore Tekken fans that grind Ranked Mode or have gone out to enter the tournaments. This new mode will hopefully give newcomers a small dip into the competitive Tekken scene in a tournament format. This Q&A video is part of a small ongoing Q&A video series so be on the look out for more in the future. Video courtesy of Bandai Namco Europe.
